Windows 7: How to uininstall Macrium

16 Oct 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
How to uininstall Macrium

Control Panel > Uninstall a program does not list it, and Macrium's set of files on my HD does not include an uninstall program.

So, how to uninstall it please?

EDIT: I have just discovered that my folder named "Macrium" is in fact empty, so it must have been uninstalled some time ago.

EDIT 2: This is confusing. I do have what appears to be an operational version of Macrium (see attachment) which for some reason did not come up in an earlier search. So my question remains, how to uninstall it?

First try reinstalling it. Then reboot and try uninstalling again. If that doesn't work try:

GeekUninstaller | GeekUninstaller - portable so runs without install. If Macrium Reflect is detected double click the entry to attempt removal.

Optionally right click Macrium and choose "Force Removal"

Also your screenshot shows Macrium Reflect Service (it usually runs in the background all the time) so windows uninstsller may not remove it.

You can manually delete the service by stopping the service:

Start> Run>

then type


Press Enter

Stop Macrium Service

Open an Elevated Command Prompt

then type

sc delete "Macrium Reflect Image Mounting Service"

include the quotes.

Macrium v5 Users Opinions on Macrium v6
Was wondering of those who have used Macrium v5 and gone to v6, are they happier or not? I am not sure if I like the idea of a console coming up to restore, vs inserting media, as if the console doesn't come up for some reason...

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,

Macrium perhaps not what I'm looking for...or is it?
When I read the posts about Macrium Reflect, I thought it was the answer to my prayers. What I wanted was a way to backup my C: drive, and use that backup to restore my system to this state when required. I was looking to install Windows 7, then install all the basic applications / drivers that...

A clean install is hard to face, but I'm having so many problems with the system (System Restore hasn't worked in two years) that I'm wondering if an uninstall/reinstall of Win 7 would resolve problems and give me a clean start. Everything is backed up: Carbonite, Acronis, Macrium,...
